Despite winter weather, construction of the new Los Altos Community Center is going smoothly, according to an update city of Los Altos officials issued last week.

Officials announced via email Feb. 3 that demolition is officially over, the foundation is being poured and framing is on the horizon.

“All the old buildings and foundation have been removed,” city staff said in the update. “The buildings came down quickly, but sorting and recycling the rubble was the bulk of this phase. Currently, construction crews are pouring the concrete foundation and digging trenches for utilities.”

Crews made up for unforeseen showers since the groundbreaking in October by devoting extra time to the project, said management fellow Trevor Marsden.

“Any time delay due to rain delay or unforeseen circumstance was compensated for by Saturday work and extended work hours earlier in the project,” he said via email.

Neighbors can expect to hear “nailing and screwing” in coming months as walls go up, staff said, assuring them that the work will be worth it and construction should still wrap up by the original projected date in December.

“We are incredibly excited for the work that our contractors, construction managers, and city staff have been able to accomplish,” officials said in the update.
